Certificate Requirements

The Certificate of Advanced Study (CAS) in South Asia is available to Syracuse University students in all graduate programs who are looking to supplement their degree with an interdisciplinary approach to the cultures, politics, history, arts, and current events of this region. Students are required to complete at least twelve (12) credits.

Students matriculated in any MA or PhD program at Syracuse University and who have completed 12 graduate credit-hours in courses dealing with South Asia are eligible to apply to the Director of the South Asia Center for a “Certificate of Advanced Study in South Asia.” The Director shall determine that the courses listed by the student meet the requirements for the Certificate. Graduate students may apply at any time after they are matriculated in a graduate program at SU, but it is advisable to wait until their final semester or until they have completed the 12 credit hours.

Candidates can choose three other courses from the list below:


*Some South Asian content is included (30% or more). Students may use these courses for the certificate only if they write their research paper on a South Asian topic.
